HVAC (air conditioning) advice

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


Me and my (soon to be, shh) fiancee are planning to move out Sydney-way in a couple of years time, think between Feb and Aug 2013. I've had a look through the first 5 or so pages here and I can't find anything on this so I thought i'd ask. What's the air con industry like over there? I've worked for BT for the last 7.5 years over here and part of my job has been on air conditioning, and of the aspects of my job it's the one I most enjoy and the one I think i'd have the most chance of finding work for in Aus. I passed the new FGAS regs last year. My main questions are, are there many jobs going in air con generally? Do Australia, NSW specifically, recognise UK qualifications such as FGAS? And are there any courses I can do once i'm in Aus that would get me up to the required qualifications if the UK ones aren't enough?


Any experience stories from those who've already done it, or already work in the industry, would be very welcome too :)
